Nikon Speaks Up about Manual Control

An reader sent this in via the Contact form:

Yesterday, I contacted Nikon about the D-movie feature on the D90 and new D5000 not having manual controls, and asked how real the possibility of an upcoming firmware update would be to allow manual control over the shutter speed and ISO. Well, the reply was very promising, and I thought ProLost would be the best place to share it. Here is the email in full:

We are working on an update to these equipments to allow manual selection of shutter speeds and ISO during D-Movie mode and more, we don’t have a specific date but we are working on it. We have had customers with the same concern and we are trying to improve on this firmware update.

Again, Thank you
